Recently, Designs by Ginny had the privilege of creating some unique and fun centerpieces for The Landing Catering, located on 2801 South Michigan Street, South Bend, IN. The Landing was hosting the after hours event for the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce. To better showcase what The Landing Catering offers in the way of service they set up several theme tables. Designs by Ginny was asked to create a centerpiece for each table, an anniversary, a mardi gras, a wedding and a holiday theme. For the anniversary table we decided to celebrate The Landing Catering as they have been in business for 22 years. To capture the theme we used champagne bottles. We created custom labels for the bottles emphasizing the 22 years of business. One bottle was placed in an ice bucket with faux looking ice chips, a custom cut number 22 and some gold glitter ting. The ice bucket was placed on a charger with silk greenery, another champagne bottle and some faux grapes.We used a tuscan color tablecloth and burgundy napkins, that were custom folded with an event card placed inside.
Mardi Gras is always a fun theme for a party. Lots of color to play with. We used two colors for the table cloth and napkins. We alternated the colors on the napkins and they were folded to look like a king's hat keeping in character with the theme. Designs by Ginny also hand painted some water glasses with the Fleur Des Lis adding to the excitement of the table. The glasses could then be used as a party favor. For the centerpiece we used a tall glass cylinder, topped it off with purple and green feathers, custom cut styrofoam glittered masks, a Bourbon Street sign, and sequined ting. Cascading down the were gold, purple and green beads. Surrounding the base of the glass was a custom cut fleur des lis and inside the glass was a battery light shinning up on the centerpiece. Beads were randomly place over the base as well as some gold coins (doubloons).
For the Holiday theme we created a centerpiece with a nature theme, using branches that were painted metallic silver and custom cut styrofoam reindeer that were painted and glittered silver. They were placed into a base of silk greenery that had a strand of battery mini lights. A snowflake patterned silk and metallic ribbon was used to create a bow on each side of the centerpiece. This ribbon was also used to make napkin ring holders, with a pine cone and some greenery. The white napkin was then placed on a silver charger added extra pizazz to the overall look of the table creating a very festive table. A beautiful white sheer overlay set an elegant look over the navy colored table cloth.
For the wedding theme we used orange roses and pink hydrangeas for a very colorful table. If you didn't know the flowers were silk you would think they were real in the arrangement were created using a candle stick holder as our base for a very elegant look. Adding to the appeal of this piece were sprays with green crystals pulling in the color of the table cloth. Orange napkins were draped over the plate and down the front of the table creating a burst of color. The napkins were placed inside a custom cut pink glittered heart, again adding a burst of color. Pink and orange ribbon was attached to the heart complimenting the look. A very colorful but elegant total look!
For the hors d'oeuvres table we used silk burgundy wild roses and hydrangeas, white orchids and tall white sprays, assorted greenery, copper painted twigs on top of an antique white iron candle holder for a very classic look.
